Our Sexy Holiday - Marie Tuhart #mysexysaturday

Welcome to another week of My Sexy Saturday.





This week’s theme: Our Sexy Holidays

I don’t have any holiday books I can use, so I decided to use these 7 paragraphs from an upcoming novella I will self publish next year.  I hope you enjoy it. And please visit all the other My Sexy Saturday authors.


     “Not so fast, my lovely.” A deep voice said as fabric covered her eyes.
     Heart pounding, her hands automatically went to her face, but strong hands captured her wrists.
     “Oh no, you will not remove my blindfold.” The voice had changed to a softer tone, but still commanded.
     Grace exhaled. Max’s voice. She hadn't recognized it when he first spoke. Excitement flooded her veins. What was he up to?
     “You’re working late and all alone. I’ve been watching you. Now, I have you at my mercy.”
     “Please don’t hurt me.” The fantasy. He was going to make it a reality. But she’d never talked about being blindfolded.

     “If you obey me, I won’t hurt you. But act up, and you will be punished.”


Have a wonderful holiday season.

Wrapped

Manhattan Bound Series #2
By Juliette Braddock

Synopsis

Sweeping through the glitz and glamour of New York’s high society and the drama unfolding in the dressing rooms of Broadway, Wrapped, by Juliet Braddock, continues the journey of a young theatrical publicist’s foray into submission under the tutelage of a dashingly dark star of the stage. Wrapped—the much anticipated sequel to Braddock’s critically acclaimed erotic romance Weakened—is the second book in the Manhattan Bound series.
When Drew McKenzie presents Maxine Kirk with an ultimatum, challenging her to engage in his wanton brand of desire, she readily embraces her awakening hunger for a lifestyle that defies her perceptions of romance.
Entranced by Drew’s charming appeal and by his sensual assault to her senses, Maxine clamors to discover every nuance of this new relationship, ravenous to explore verboten fantasies that seem possible to fulfill only with Drew.
Along the way, he introduces her to his glamorous world of wealth and celebrity—where lavish galas and luxurious gifts are the norm—and entices her into his realm of control with his tender mode of domination.
All the while, however, they both grapple with painful emotions brought about by the extenuating circumstances of their separate pasts.
While Drew remains both confident and conscientious in his parlay of power over Maxine, his own tragic secret lurks in every shadow upon his path in life. Behind the façade of his stage persona and the origin of old Manhattan society, he struggles to hide the unforgiving reality he faced as a child.
Just as Maxine finds the strength to conquer her own torment with Drew’s patience and guidance leading her toward closure, terrifying truths begin to chip away at the surface of his composure.
As the nightmarish details of Drew’s unimaginable life emerge, he fears that this new world he’d begun to build with Maxine will crumble around him.
As Maxine finds herself embroiled in the battle to save Drew’s tortured soul from the atrocities that continue to stalk his every move, two lost souls struggling to find comfort and completion converge.
However, as Drew opens his heart to Maxine’s unwavering support, he questions his own bravery, wondering if she’ll take a bow and make her exit…or if she’ll stick around for the encore?

Manhattan Bound Series #3

Synopsis

Spiraling from the bustling streets of New York City to the opulence of Paris, KNOTTED, the third book in Juliet Braddock’s Manhattan Bound series, continues the steamy journey of Maxine Kirk’s whirlwind romance with star of the Broadway stage, Drew McKenzie.

As their love continues to flourish, Maxine finds herself ensconced in Drew’s world, where power reigns in his all-consuming lust for her. From a blackout in Manhattan to a back alley in Paris to a castle in the Loire Valley, their passion knows no boundaries.

All the while, though, traces from their separate pasts continue to haunt, threatening to disrupt their happiness.

Maxine must confront the harsh, emotional realities that she’d thought she’d conquered. However, she wonders if her courage will withstand the crushing heartache that has threatened to destroy her soul.

As Drew continues to fit together the missing pieces of his childhood, danger shadows his every move. Drifting through the tumultuous events of their public and personal lives, Drew will stop at nothing to keep Maxine safe—and to guard their secrets from the world.

Passion and peril collide, culminating in the explosive revelation of the enigma that’s followed Drew for years.

Guest Post: Charm Me by Tena Stetler

Today I welcome Tena Stetler who will be talking about her book Charm Me part of the Candy Heart series by The Wild Rose Press

Tell us a little about yourself.

I’m a paranormal romance author with an over-active imagination.  To my mother’s chagrin, I wrote my first vampire romance at the age of twelve. My friends loved it, their parents, no so much. I was the weird kid in school, know what I mean?  Writing as always been a passion, but life intervened and I spent a good portion of my adult life as a Paralegal in criminal and general law practices.  Colorado is home, I share with my hubby of many moons, a brilliant Chow Chow, a spoiled parrot and a forty-year-old box turtle.  Any winter evening, you can find me curled up in front of a crackling fire with a good book, a large mug of hot chocolate and a big bowl of popcorn. 

What do like the most and the least about writing?

What I like most is crafting a story that whisks readers away from their normal lives into a fantasy realm of paranormal romance and intrigue.  My heroes are ruggedly handsome alphas, my heroines are smart, determined women. Both have a strong belief in right and wrong. 
My least favorite is probably edits.  I’m always anxious to write the next book, find out what the characters in my head are going to do next. LOL

Give us a peek into your latest published work?

Charm Me – A Candy Hears novella from The Wild Rose Press available for preorder now, release date of January 6, 2015

Summer Dawn Riley is an extraordinary elemental witch whose troubled past haunts her. She’s created a calm life for herself teaching yoga and keeping people at a distance. Her life takes a one eighty degree turn when she enrolls in a women’s weapons class and meets ruggedly handsome Devlin Sawyer. Devlin, a former Navy Seal, has sworn off women after two long-term failed relationships, but there is no denying his attraction to Summer. She intrigues him like no other woman ever has. Despite her attempts to ignore him, Summer is drawn to Devlin. His magic signature is strong, but he’s no warlock. Will Valentine’s Day magic find them a future together?

What’s next on the writing horizon for you?

Edits on A Witch’s Journey, my novel that was contacted in November then polishing A Vampire’s Unlikely Alliance, the second book in the Demon’s Witch Series.  I’d like to finish my nano project A Wedding For The Holidays and get it ready for submission in time for Christmas 2016.  We’ll see how it all works out. 

Is there anything you want to tell readers?

Excerpt for Charm Me:

Getting to her feet, she brushed the dust from her black yoga pants, tugged at the bottom of her bright orange tunic, and flipped the light switch on. A soft glow of florescent lighting flooded the large room, soothing Summer’s nerves. Guess she would never be the same carefree individual she was before the incident. Oh, shake it off. You’re safe and it’s time to get on with life. “Come on Pip, let’s get this place open.”

A massive stone fireplace towered in the corner.  She picked up an arm full of wood and flung it in the general direction. Logs landed in the fire pit and neatly arranged themselves in a tepee shape. With a magic flick of her finger toward the hearth, flames raced up the aspen logs. “That’s better.”

She raised her arms, about to send the yoga mats back to their proper place when the heavy wooden front door creaked open. Piper rushed toward the door, teeth bared and a growl rumbled in her throat. Summer whirled around and yelped as Devlin ambled into the room, black hair tousled and glistening with melting snowflakes. His nonchalance at the dog’s approach surprised her as he slowed to a stop. Piper sniffed around him, backed up a few inches, then stood at alert in front of Devlin.

“You scared the bejeebers out of me.” Summer held her hand to her chest as her heart thundered.
“What are you doing here?”
“Call your guard dog off and I’ll tell you.” The corners of Devlin’s mouth curved up into a smile, a faint light twinkled in the depths of his dark eyes.
“Piper, leave it…come.” The dog gave Devlin a last sideways glance, trotted back to Summer and sat at her side.

Her Sexy Fantasy by Marie Tuhart #mysexysaturday

It's that time again My Sexy Saturday



This week theme: Her Sexy Fantasy

This is from my book More Than One Night.  Jake has taken Beth to his apartment for a night of sensual fun. 


     He stood behind her, her back against his chest, as he guided her hands to her side.
     She stared at their reflection in the glass, as he slid his fingers up her bare arms, to her shoulders. Her breathing hitched when his rounded nails teased the column of her neck, moving past her throat to the first button on her blouse.
     Was he going to make love to her in front of the window? Her heart pounded with excitement and trepidation. His apartment was high enough so she didn’t need to worry about someone seeing them. The white button slipped through the hole, then his fingers moved to the second one and the third until her blouse hung open.
     Unable to help herself, her hands rose, but he caught them. Their gazes locked in the window.
     “Let me take care of you. Let me make this night special.”
     Beth could barely breathe. Could she let him take the lead? Why not? She didn’t have much experience in one-night stands and she wanted this night to be good for both of them.
     She nodded and he released her hands. She let them fall to her sides, hoping she wasn’t making the biggest mistake of her life.


I hoped you’ve enjoy this week’s My Sexy Saturday.

Guest blog: Witch of Death by Chrys Fey

Today I welcome Chrys Fey talking about her book Witch of Death

A witch’s spell can be murder

Murder isn’t always committed with magic unless a witch is involved.

"WITCH OF DEATH is a tale of magical murders that will leave you spell-bound!" -Dylan Newton, author of Any Witch Way


Blurb:
Detective Reid Sanders doesn’t believe in the supernatural, but when he’s faced with a crime scene that defies the laws of nature, he has no other choice but to start believing. And solving a magical murder involves working with a witch.
Liberty Sawyer embodies the look of your classic evil witch, so, it’s no surprise when she uncovers the murderer is a witch that she becomes Reid’s number one suspect. If she can’t convince him otherwise, more people could lose their lives to dark magic, including her.


Excerpt:
Liberty Sawyer glided swiftly through the horde of police officers, reporters, and on- lookers. Black hair fell from a rigid part in the middle of her scalp to her hips. Her eyes were a soul-stabbing blue and her lips were blood-red. She towered over the other officers on the scene, and wore all black, which set off the pallor of her skin.
Showing her badge to the officer, she slipped under the crime scene tape. A few paces away, she spotted Detective Corbin talking to his new partner, a man she knew by name but hadn’t had the privilege of meeting yet.
“I cannot believe you called her,” the new man was saying when she came up behind them. “We don’t need a damn psychic!”
“Actually, I’m a witch.” She smiled when Reid jolted and turned to face her. “I’m
Detective Liberty Sawyer.” She stuck out her hand.
“Detective Reid Sanders,” he grunted back and took her hand.
The feel of his palm against hers sent tingles of lust from the tips of her fingers to her shoulder blade, and she knew he felt it too by the way he jerked his hand back. She winked at him playfully, hoping it would unnerve him even more.

A Sexy Galaxy - Marie Tuhart #mysexysaturday

It's My Sexy Saturday

I hope everyone is enjoying My Sexy Saturday, I know I'm having fun finding things to post.

This week's theme is: My Sexy Galaxy.

What I decided to do is 7 paragraphs from a paranormal erotic romance I started to write a while back.  I hope you enjoy.

Just to give you some back ground, the hero's Trent and Ryder (this is a menage book MFM) have come to earth looking for a special crystal that was taken from their planet.  Alyssa is my heroine, she is an artist.  They are all at the gallery where Alyssa's best friend works.  Trent and Ryder have just walked into the gallery and saw Alyssa.


             Trent?  Ryder used his mind link to speak with his brother. 
            I see it too.
            How is this possible?  Ryder was trying to cope with the sensory overload.  Sight and smell all hit his senses and went straight to his cock.  The way her brown hair framed her oval face, the blueness of her eyes, the colors swirling around her entire body.  He could smell the perfume of the alyssum flower of their home world.  How was this possible?  She was an earthling.
            Possible or not, said Trent, She is our bonding mate.
            Ryder’s cock pulsed at his brother’s words.  Bonding mate.  How long to the portal?
            Five Earth hours.

            We have to get her alone.  Now.

That's it for today.  I hope you've enjoy it.  And don't forget to click on My Sexy Saturday at the top and go read the other entries for today.
